Data Center Disposition
The everyday person may not be familiar with the term “data center,” or at least not know exactly what it entails. A data center is a physical facility or infrastructure that houses an organization’s computing and digital storage resources. It is responsible for storing, processing and disseminating data and supporting business applications and activities, such as emailing.
Elements of a data center can include servers, routers, switches, storage devices, firewalls, and other IT assets. There are various types of data centers, from data centers that are built by large companies and housed on a corporate campus, to data centers that are managed by a third party and leased to a company, to virtual cloud-based data centers.
With the working world becoming increasingly digital and remote, many companies are opting to transition from traditional physical data centers to cloud-based data centers. This leaves companies with a lot of now useless data center assets that have to be wiped and disposed of. That’s where companies that offer data center disposition can be incredibly helpful.
PROSHRED® San Francisco, for example, works to help clients make the move to a cloud provider, while still recovering value from their existing data center assets.
